I am able to…

What are you able to do?
Essa pergunta quer dizer ‘o que você é capaz de fazer?’. A estrutura ‘be able to’ é usada em inglês para se referir àquilo que alguém consegue realizar.
É interessante perceber que o que se altera, de acordo com o tempo verbal que se deseja, é apenas o verbo be. Portanto, no presente, temos três formas:
(I) AM ABLE TO
(You / We / They) ARE ABLE TO
(He / She / It) IS ABLE TO
Já no passado, somente duas:
(I / He / She / It) WAS ABLE TO
(You / We / They) WERE ABLE TO
Vejamos outras possibilidades:
I WILL BE ABLE TO (Serei capaz de)
I WOULD BE ABLE TO (Seria capaz de)
I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO (Tenho sido capaz de)
SHE HAS BEEN ABLE TO (Ela tem sido capaz de)
WE MUST BE ABLE TO (Devemos ser capazes de)
THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO (Eles deveriam ser capazes de)
Então, para praticar, escolha a alternativa correta e complete as frases:
